Does that include breaking international law?

Isn't it amazing that Blair has had nerve to have a go at Boris's so called law-breaking bill, Blair the man that took us into an illegal war.

I ashamed to admit it but I once voted for Blair.

Blair is a busted flush who no-one especially in the current "government" will give any credence to. There is nothing "supposed" about Johnson's law breaking though. It is the consequence of the actions of a man who is too lazy to read what is in front of him and his refusal to allow any forensic appraisal of his actions. The fact we are potentially about to witness a large Tory revolt over the matter should tell you all you need to know about the chasm that has formed between those with traditional Tory views and the nasty moral-free brand currently being espoused by Johnson, Gove et all.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

You seem to be confusing the right to expect a democratic vote to be upheld, with the twists and turns of a tortuous negotiation 4 years later.

It could have been so different had the negotiations been handled differently but the latest drama is the UK trying to protect its internal market in the unlikely event of a deal not being struck.

Incidentally the EU is supposed to be a rules based organisation yet many members have broken important rules with impunity when it suited them.

Perhaps we can have this conversation if and when we do actually break international law which is unlikely as I would expect a deal to be struck.

Don't worry too much,many voted for BJ who will be regretting it.

Johnson never wanted a deal from the outset, he was always intent on a 'no deal' despite his lies and protestations.

flipping lying illegitimate, the best time of this awful Tory government was when he was out of the way in hospital with Covid
(if you belive he ever was of course)


One enormous step forward at last followed by two steps back again. It has to be a clear out from the top, the players and the manager, no going back. An opportunity missed Hurst out

Sunday Times

Supermarkets are this weekend stockpiling food and other goods after being told by ministers that a no-deal Brexit is on the cards.

Food producers have warned there will be shortages of vegetables for three months and emergency planners predict that no-deal would spark panic-buying on a scale that could dwarf the coronavirus crisis.

In a sign of what might be to come, lorries were backed up for three miles on the A20 outside Dover yesterday, after Calais suffered 10-mile tailbacks on Friday. Hauliers blamed the jams in Kent on “stock-building”.

Health ministers have told suppliers of medicines, medical devices and vaccines to stockpile six weeks’ worth at secure locations in the UK.

Boris Johnson is set to take control of planning from Michael Gove if Britain opts for no-deal, chairing a “super XO” exit operations committee to prepare the response.

The prime minister’s move comes amid fears that a trade deal will not be possible by the deadline at the end of today.

Talks between the two negotiators — Lord Frost and Michel Barnier — continued last night and will resume today. Johnson is also expected to speak today to Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission. But a senior figure said the chances of a deal were no better than 20%.

A government source said: “As things stand, the offer on the table from the EU remains unacceptable. The prime minister will leave no stone unturned in this process, but he is absolutely clear: any agreement must be fair and respect the fundamental position that the UK will be a sovereign nation in three weeks’ time.”

Cabinet ministers want Johnson to get cabinet approval before announcing that Britain is heading for no-deal. Some also want to see the legal text of the EU’s proposals but none is prepared to publicly question Johnson’s approach.

A senior consultant to one of the biggest supermarkets revealed: “There was a conversation a week ago when ministers said prepare for no-deal. This weekend the message is that it’s no-deal.

“Supermarkets and ministers are hugely worried about panic-buying. They saw what happened over Covid when people started hoarding toilet rolls and know how quickly it can go wrong.
